Since the start of the World Wide Web thousands of anti-war and pro-peace projects have already come and gone.

Documents re-found! / AntiWar404 / Maybe this is a good time to rediscover the Anti-war Movement? While many in the U.S. voted for Barack Obama to end the hawkish foreign policy of the Bush era, so far the investments in Bush's wars have only increased. April was the deadliest month this year for both Iraqi civilians and American soldiers. In Afghanistan and Pakistan, aerial bombardments of villages -- and allegations that the U.S. has used white phosphorus weapons -- have further diminished sympathy for the U.S. presence in the region. Yet the demand for an immediate end to Bush's wars is barely audible in the din of American media. As the military misadventures in Afghanistan and Pakistan escalate, the role played by independent media in the lead up to the war in Iraq is now "not found."
